Introduction 

Femma is an online women’s health platform. The Femma platform creates and provides paid subscribers with access to products and content that relate to women’s health. Subscribers to the Femma platform can also access confidential telehealth consultations with: 

  • Associate Doctor 
  • Associate Practitioner 

Our Website, Content and any communications you have with us is of a general nature only and does not take into account your particular circumstances, nor constitute medical advice. It is not intended to diagnose, treat or manage any health condition or disease. 

Acceptance of these Terms 

Your understanding, acceptance of, and compliance with, these Terms, Privacy Policy and our Telehealth Consent is a condition of your access to and use of this Website. 

Femma reserves the right to review and amend these Terms from time to time at our sole discretion. We will give reasonable notice of any changes. Your continued access to and use of this Website will be conditional on your agreement to such changes. 

User responsibility 

To attend confidential telehealth consultations and communicate with Associate Doctors and Associate Practitioners you must register for an account with Femma. 

Registered account holders must: 

  • be over 18 years old; 
  • reside in Australia; and 
  • be capable of entering into a legally binding agreement with Femma. 

You must not provide or reveal your login details to any other person. You are responsible for protecting the security and privacy of your login details and must notify us immediately in the event they are lost or if you know of or suspect any unauthorised use. You are solely responsible for all activity that occurs under your account. 

Products and Services 

The Femma platform connects you with Associate Doctors and Associate Practitioners; but we do not ourselves provide medical advice or services, nor are we a pharmacy or pathology provider. 

Femma takes no responsibility and makes no warranties, express or implied, in relation to the content of any consultation between you and the Associate Doctors or Associate Practitioners. You and the Associate Doctors or Associate Practitioners are responsible for the conduct of the consultation and all information or communications made. 

The Associate Doctors or Associate Practitioners take exactly the same personal responsibility for you as they would if they were seeing you in person. The Associate Doctors or Associate

Practitioners will make notes of their consultation with you and it is their responsibility to hold and maintain your records as required by law. 

Femma may from time to time hold copies of notes made by the Associate Doctors or Associate Practitioners. Femma does not guarantee that an online consultation is the appropriate course of treatment for your particular health care problem. This assessment will be made by the Associate Doctors or Associate Practitioners. 

You agree to contact your own doctor immediately should your condition change or your symptoms worsen. If you require urgent care, you should contact your local emergency services immediately. 

You agree that if you suffer from any noticeable side-effects, you will contact Femma to facilitate a further consultation with an Associate Doctor or Associate Practitioner. 

Associate Pharmacy 

Femma is not a pharmacy and therefore does not dispense any medicines. You can fulfil your script through a pharmacy of your choice by contacting hello@femma.com.au. In cases where you prefer to use an Associate Pharmacist, Femma will facilitate the subscription and payment process. 

Femma’s Associate Pharmacy is Medmate. A copy of the Medmate Terms and Conditions can be found here: https://medmate.com.au/terms-and-conditions/. The pharmacies that Medmate dispense from include:

If you choose to purchase medication through Femma, we will be sharing information with our Associate Pharmacy so they can dispense and fulfil your medications. By choosing to purchase medication through Femma you consent to uploading an electronic prescription from Femma for the purposes of online medication ordering with the Medmate platform and consent to Medmate’s Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policy. You can also ask Femma’s registered pharmacist any questions that you may have about your medications via our ‘ask the pharmacist’ feature before purchasing medications through Femma.

Subject to any stated refund obligations, we may not be held liable or responsible for their delivery, quality, suitability for your symptom(s) or condition(s), conformity to expected specifications, effects (or lack thereof), or anything directly linked to your ordering and receipt of such medications. You must refer to Medmate’s Terms and Conditions to establish your rights for this.

Femma does not accept returns on pharmacy or over the counter Products purchased from our Associate Pharmacists. Our Associate Pharmacists follow a strict code of professional practice to ensure that the medicines and products they sell have been produced and stored under strict conditions. It would also not be possible for us to confirm whether returned medicines have been stored properly or have been tampered with. 

Subscription, Sales, Cancellations and Refunds 

Subscription: 

The minimum term of a Femma subscription is three months from the time of signing up for a paid subscription. The cost of a Femma subscription is charged to your nominated credit or debit card each month, or every 3 months, at your discretion. You can view pricing and what is included in your subscription here: https://femma.com.au/how-it-works/

We may, upon written notice to you, change the price for your current subscription, to take effect the next time you renew your subscription.

Consultations: 

Additional consultations, beyond what is included in your subscription, can be purchased within your account. 

Additional consultations can only be purchased once you have used the consultations included within your subscription. 

If you purchase an ad-hoc consultation, you cannot purchase another consultation until you have completed all live consultations. 

Text based consultations will expire 7 days after the Associate Doctor or Associate Practitioner makes contact with you, if you do not reply to any Associate Doctor or Associate Practitioner’s questions. 

Femma uses Coviu for all video consultations. For video consultations you must use a computer or mobile device capable of video streaming (eg. with a webcam, microphone and speakers or headphones). Access to a high-speed reliable internet connection (suitable bandwidth for video consultation) and a suitable quiet and private area to consult are advisable.

There is no surcharge for MasterCard or Visa transactions on the Website.

Your credit card will be billed as soon as your order is placed. This is done to protect the security of your credit card details, as we do not store your card details at any point (except in the case of recurring orders, where your credit card details will be stored in Stripe, our third-party service provider.) 

Cancellation, Returns and Refunds: 

You can cancel your subscription at any time. 

If you cancel, your subscription will expire at the end of your subscription period and will not renew. 

If you have an unused consultation still available in your account, you will be able to access this consultation anytime up until the end of your subscription period.

We can only refund back to the payment method and card used for the original charge. Fulfilment and Shipping 

Orders can be sent within Australia only. 

Products can only be purchased and sent to Australian residents with Australian addresses. Femma is unable to send Products to PO boxes.
